HIDDEN VALLEY, CALIFORNIA — The Calleguas Municipal Water District is accusing “Magnum P.I.” star Tom Selleck of stealing water from a Ventura County water district fire hydrant with a white water-tender truck.

The Calleguas Municipal Water District even hired a real P.I. to prove their claim.

Selleck had huge amounts of water from a public hydrant delivered to his huge Hidden Valley ranch, according to court documents filed against the actor.

Apparently on more than a dozen occasions since 2013, a white truck has filled up at a Thousand Oaks hydrant and hauled water to Selleck’s 60-acre ranch in Westlake Village.

To keep track of Selleck’s theft, the water district spent almost $22,000 to hire a private investigator, according to the complaint.

Calleguas says Selleck and his wife, Jillie, who is also named in the complaint, are barred from using water from the hydrant because their ranch is located in a different water district, Hidden Valley Municipal Water District.

The complaint comes amid one of California’s longest droughts while residents are being asked to cut water usage by 25 percent.

In addition to legal fees and PI costs, the water district is seeking a preliminary and permanent injunction barring Selleck and his contractors or employees from taking water from the Calleguas district.
